    I have a song that has a 50 seconds of nothingness on the end. Is there a way I can delete that on iTunes, or Garageband?



    Help is needed urgently!

    Drag it into Garageband and clip the end off, then export to iTunes.

    or if don't want to get rid of it you can set in itunes to play and stop a song and it will automatically play the part you set

    I have to burn the song to cd, so I don't think that will work. I'll try the garageband thing. Will post back later.

    Ok... How do I get a iTunes song into garageband? I can't import it. And I can't drag it from iTunes into Garageband.

    GRRRR...

    Is this an mp3, m4a or m4p file?

    If m4p, your only choice would be to burn it to CD, re-rip it and trim accordingly.

    Its an Audio CD. I'm not sure what that is. I assume is uncompressed format, but I don't know if its 'm4p'

    If you select the start and stop time for the song (in the information window), iTunes will burn only the selected part to CD. Simple and easy. :)

    Phew. if it was an m4p tack you bought from itunes you'd first have to burn it to CD and then follow the instructions below.

    First step is to rip the track to an AIFF file (you can do this just by dragging it from the CD displayed on your desktop to your hard drive). Then just use Audacity, or something smilar including GarageBand, to trim the AIFF file.

    Glad that our help was useful. :)

    If there is a simple solution, you can count on the Apple developpers: they have implemented it. The hardest part of working on a Mac is to find out that simple and easy solution. And sometimes I have the impression, by working on Windows, you slowly lose the ability to find that straight and easy path. :D
